SAN DIEGO -- A big rig filled with UPS air freight packages flipped onto its side in the North County early Thursday, tying up the southbound Interstate 5 offramp to state Route 76 for hours, authorities said.

The crash happened around 3:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol, which said the offramp would likely be closed until the freight could be unloaded and the truck could towed away.

Authorities brought in a crane to right the toppled big rig. The process was complete and all lanes reopened as of 10:45 a.m., the CHP reported.

There were no  reports of injury.
